How the team’s injuries may affect Ravens vs. Titans matchup

In contrast to the Titans who enter the weekend without a player still on their injury report, the Ravens have seven situations to monitor. Two of those — Patrick Mekari and D.J. Fluker — come along the starting offensive line, which already lost All-Pro Ronnie Stanley to an ankle injury back in November. Mekari missed Baltimore’s season finale while Fluker played on just 45% of the team’s offensive snaps in that game.

Meanwhile, the Ravens’ secondary could see Marlon Humphrey and Jimmy Smith either miss Sunday’s game or play with some physical limitations. Humphrey ranks as one of the league’s premier cornerbacks. And while Smith doesn’t play as prominent a role as he did five-plus years ago, he remains effective in coverage (57.4 defensive passer rating).
